Each year I add a new welcome poem to my store and hooray, it's always a freebie!
This year, I have changed things up a bit. I did not include any treats, only supplies. I know that many schools and teachers are really moving away from the idea of giving their students a bunch of candy, and while I loved giving my students a bag of treats, I did find that it was a little pricey. Additionally, the supplies included for this poem are all supplies that you can easily find during back to school sales!
For this poem, you'll need a pencil, erasers (cap ones are a cheaper idea), a pencil sharpener, sticky notes (and they don't have to be Post-its), a highlighter, a pen, and a bookmark (you can even make your own bookmark).
Please note that there are two pages of the poem in case you want to print two pages to one to save some ink. They fit perfectly on a lunch-sized paper bag if you print them that way or you can even staple them to the outside of a baggie.
I hope that you will enjoy this year's welcome poem freebie. Please don't forget to leave feedback after you download! If you have any questions or concerns about this product, please ask before leaving feedback! I'm happy to help.
